Recently I signed on to be part of a “blog tour” — in which different bloggers would read and reflect on Tony Jones’ new book, The Teaching of the Twelve: Believing & Practicing the Primitive Christianity of the Ancient Didache Community. I was supposed to write about this book on December 7. Alas, the gremlins of miscommunication did their work, and I did not receive my copy of the book until Tuesday — the day after I was scheduled to offer my .02 to the trans-blogged conversation. My apologies to Tony Jones, to Paraclete Press and to anyone following the blog tour who came to this blog looking for my own unique perspective: obviously, my own sense of ethics mandates that I not write about the book until I have a chance to read it, and given that my life right now is pretty largely devoted to Christmas retail, it may be a couple of days (or so) before I get the book read. But under the rubric of “better late than never,” I will read the book, and comment on it as soon as I can, even though the blog tour itself will have officially ended.
In the meantime, if you want to see what other folks have said about this book, visit Paraclete Press’s Didache page — and scroll down to see links to all the blogs that have written about this book.
